the city of oakland going t to make that happen? want to know what's stopping bart and its unions from striking a deal? oh.. about 100 million dollars. "kiet standup tease--oc: des coming up" good evening i'm elizabeth . and i'm ken bastida. and i'm ken bastida. the league lawyers are fighting back with their own court filing. we've got the details coming up. it's a crime that many have a hard time even grasping. a young father and his 1-year-old son shot to death as they slept. a small memorial, balloons, teddy bear, sit outside the east oakland house where it happened. andrew thomas and his son, drew jackson, were in town from fresno to celebrate a relative a
10:01 pm
birthday. someone snuck into the backyard and opened fire. >> pop, pop, pop, pop, pop! eight or nine time s! >> i just wish this'd stop. i don't want my other cousins to try to retaliate. >> the motive, still unclear. but police believe it could be connected to another fatal shooting over the weekend. three weeks ago tonight, an 8-year-old was also caught in the crossover of a shooting that shockedon oakland community -- an oakland community. someone rang the bell then blasted the front door with bullets. and still no arrests in the shooting death of a woman driving her car near her maxwell park home in oakland. we told you about judy saloman. the
10:02 pm
community has talked about hiring private security guard to patrol the neighborhood. it seems to be never-ending. even though we've heard for years about plans to stop this violence, it seems to happen every night. >> whatever happened to operation cease-fire? >> reporter: on the day that 1-year-old drew jackson became oakland's youngest homicide victim in a decade, the mayor and police chief did what they do. >> we are absolutely determined to make the city safer. >> reporter: they talked about yet another public safety plan that has not worked for oakland. cease-fire. >> we're going to be calling in the -- some of the people who have been involved in the most violent crimes. >> reporter: that was the mayor 11 months ago. and today? >> with all due respect, we've all seen this happen so many time, so many young children shot, and we keep hearing about these plans to change things.
10:03 pm
and we haven't seen a lot change. what is your centerpiece plan? >> we plan to continue with cease-fire until we've hauled in the top 200 and 300 most violent people in the city. >> why hasn't it been fully funded to this point? it's been months. >> i think -- you know -- >> cease-fire is my no. 1 strategy for reducing violent crime, shootings and murders in this town. >> reporter: we found out cease-fire is not being run like the city's no. 1 strategy. there is no permanent director. and the few officers who have been running it have only been doing it part-time. >> i'm able to dedicate full-time enforcement team to cease-fire . >> reporter: in the meantime, the mayor and police chief say they're working with teams to
10:04 pm
start a youth-based safety program. the teams told me they want to be optimistic. >> when this is all said and done, when the cameras are packed up and the microphones are put away, then i don't know how much hope there's going to be. >> reporter: and the police chief told me he has not had enough officers to run the program full-time. the addition of 35 new recovers recently will mean he can now staff cease-fire. >> we know it already failed once in oakland in 2008. has it worked at all this time around? >> reporter: oakland police say they have used the strategy to basically dismantle two different gangs. one was the case gang, there was also the money team. but the homicide rate is still close to what it was last year. and the city needs to put more money and resources into cease-fire. where is sandra coke?
10:05 pm
that's the friends family and police have been asking since she disappeared sunday night in oakland. she was last seen in her north oakland home before leaving to talk to someone who may have had information on her stolen dog. her car was found abandoned monday night at an apartment complex. >> truly a painful, painful thing to have somebody who you love and who has family members who depend on her just disappear. it is just unthinkable. >> she is an investigator for the federal defender's office, which represents inmates on death row. we got quite an eye-opener today when we found out just how far apart bart and its unions are on a new contract. how about $100 million? that is the difference between what the union wants and what bart is
10:06 pm
offering. linda yi went to find out if they are so far apart now, how can they possibly reach any deal at all? >> reporter: both sides have really dug in. in fact, the talks have gotten so bad that both sides can't even agree how far apart they are! bart is saying what the union wants would cost $117 million to implement. bart unions say it's $56 million. >> reporter: it was a chance to air their grievances. bart management and the unions clarifying what's been going on in talks that started last april. what was clear, they're about $100 million apart in pay and pension issues. public policy advocates, the bay area council, says that's shocking. >> flabbergasted by how big a divide there is between bart and the unions. >> reporter: the council says
10:07 pm
bart's proposals are fair, and the union should take the contract and start paying into their pensions. findings will go to the governor who could impose a 60-day cooling off period for more negotiating time. >> reporter: one of the board of inquirey members did not agree. >> i'm surprised to hear you say this can be achieved by sunday night. >> i think the resolution will come if they strike! because the public will be heard. >> that's going to happen? you're saying the strike is inevitable, and when the public gets mad? >> yeah, somebody will wise up. >> reporter: well, are that is a drastic resolution. it is expected that the governor will decide by sunday night to impose
10:08 pm
a 60-day cooling off period. that's when the 7-day contract extension expires. >> when will they agree to host the next bargaining session? what are the chances of a settlement by sunday? >> reporter: a lot of people said it's not clear that they can even settle by sunday. they are so far apart, it's a slim chance. but given that, they are scheduled to go back to the bargaining table at least thursday and friday. they could talk all the way to sunday night to the 11th hour. let's hope something happens that breaks before then. cludes a union leaders at ac transit hammered out a tentative deal late last night. it includes a 9.5% raise, and has employees paying part of their own healthcare costs. major league baseball is
10:09 pm
playing hardball with san jose. kit doe on how mlb is trying to keep the a's from the south bay. >> reporter: after four years of staying mostly silent about the a's move to san jose, mlb finally talks. sort of. league lawyers filed a motion to dismiss san jose's lawsuit. it says the business of baseball is exempt from the antitrust laws as it has been since 1922. and the city's claims are fatally defective. san jose's attorney calls it a moral issue. >> can mlb block a competitor in this country from relocating his business simply because someone else says we don't want them to move? >> reporter: in june, the city sued the league claiming bud selig is illegally blocking the move. if san jose wins its
10:10 pm
lawsuit, every time a team wanted to move, it would lead to absurd results. mlb would be subjected to suits from any city that desires a team, and from any city that does not want to lose its team. >> that's not what the competitive laws say or the antitrust laws say for any other business in america. baseball shouldn't be treated differently. >> reporter: so this 14-acre lot in midtown san jose where the stadium would go has pretty much been unchanged the last four years. both sides will be in federal court october 4th. everywhere.. as nearly half ♪ [ inaudible ] ♪ ♪ long lines at lottery outlets everywhere as half a billion dollars signs danced in people's heads. ♪ [ inaudible ] ♪ million *before taxes. odds of winning -- 1 in 175 million.
